The presidency has reacted to the Nigerian Senate’s call for the acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) boss, Ibrahim Magu’s sack.
Senators had earlier suspended the screening and confirmation of the 27 Resident Electoral Commissioners (RECs) over the issue.
The lawmakers also complained that President Buhari’s cabinet members have shown to respect for the Senate.
Speaking on the issue, the Senate liaison officer to Buhari, Ita Enang said the Senate is an independent arm of govt and its decision will be respected.
According to Premium Times, Enang also said “We will not question the power of the senators to take decision on how they want to conduct nomination hearings.”
“We will not go fighting with them. We will listen to their grievances and reason along with them,” he added.
Meanwhile, the Senate, on Tuesday, March 28, 2017, resolved not to bow to any form intimidation in the discharge of its constitutional duties.
